Clerks across the state are busy navigating the transition (cross your fingers) between the pandemic and what the "new normal" will come to be in their communities.
And they're doing it while taking care of the day-to-day business they've always been great at:
- Making sure the work of city hall gets done efficiently and according to law.
- Keeping people safe and informed.
- Being resourceful when resources are tight.
- Offering up a touch of humor when needed.
Last Municipal Clerks Week came in the thick of pandemic management as well as census and elections preparation. This year, we hope that there's an extra helping of pride for all that you've persevered through for your cities. The future is bright and your work helps make it shine.
As always, know that the League is here by your side — because nobody should feel like they're alone in this difficult role. We're committed to being responsive to what you need to get the job done right and listening, always, to help navigate the way together.
Take care, stay safe, and THANK YOU!
